In brief: Varies

Endometriosis is a chronic condition.
Most manage the syndrome medically. If surgery is required, most prefer laparoscopy over an open laparotomy. Lysis of adhesions may be brief or extensive. Pre sacral neurectomy is a complicated procedure which should be done as a last resort, by common opinion. Talk with your provider. Ask about recurrence, complications and success rates. Hang in there.
